Additionally, we will make every attempt to seat you with graduates from your class. So round up your classmates and have a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, or 35-year reunion at the Gala! We'll do all the planning!
Arrive at five o'clock so you'll have plenty of time to stroll, chat, bid, and savor bites from our bruschetta, salad, and crudité stations.
